How is the Santa Cecília neighborhood?


I will be spending a couple of months in São Paulo on business and am looking for a place there. One of the options is a place in the Santa Cecilia neighborhood, on R. São Vicente de Paula, one block away from the Marechal Deodoro subway stop. From Google street view, it looks like a quiet, pleasant residential area. Does anyone here have an opinion? Here's what I am looking to find out:

1) Is it suitable for jogging during the day?

2) Does it have places to shop for groceries within walking distance?

3) Does it have a generally safe vibe?

4) And, the cherry on top, does it have a few nice bars and restaurants?

A bit more info about me: I have been to Sampa before, but always stayed in the Jardins neighborhood, which I find too impersonal. I feel generally safe around the city. For fun, I tend to prefer Vila Madalena to the more upscale club scene.

Thanks very much in advance.
